CONSTITUTION 

OF THB 

SOCIETY OF SONS OF THE REVOLUTION 

IN THE 

STATE OF MISSOURI. 



PREAMBLE. 



Whereas, It has become evident from the decline of proper 
celebration of such national holidays as the Fourth of July, 
Washington's Birthday, and the like, that popular interest in 
the events and men of the War of the Revolution is less than 
in the earlier days of the Republic ; and — 

Whereas, This lack of interest is to be attributed not so 
much to the lapse of time as to the neglect on the part of 
descendants of Revolutionary heroes to perform their duty of 
keeping before the public mind the memory of the services of 
their ancestors, and of the times in which they lived, and of 
the principles for which they contended — 

Therefore, The Society of the Sons of the Revolution 
has been instituted to perpetuate the memory of the men who, 
in Military, Naval or Civil service, by their acts or counsel 
achieved American Independence; to promote and assist in 
the proper celebration of the anniversaries of Washington's 
Birthday, the Battles of Lexington and Bunker Hill, the 
Fourth of July, the Capitulations of Saratoga and Yorktown, 
the Formal Evacuation of New York by the British Army on 
the 3d of December, 1783, as a relinquishment of territorial 
sovereignty, and other prominent events relating to or con- 
nected with the War of the Revolution; to collect and secure 
for preservation the manuscript rolls, records and other docu- 
ments and memorials relating to that war; to inspire among 



16 igons of i$>t (J?et>ofufion. 

the members and descendants a patriotic spirit of their fore- 
fathers ; to inculcate, in the community in general, sentiments 
of nationality, and respect for the principles for which the 
patriots of the Revolution contended; to assist in the com- 
memorative celebration of other great historical events of 
national importance, and to promote social intercourse and the 
feeling of fellowship among its members. 

ARTICLE I. 

NAME OF SOCIETY. 

The Society shall be known by the name, style and title of 
Society of Sons of the Revolution, in the State of 
Missouri. 

ARTICLE II. 

OBJECTS. 

The objects of the Society are social, educational and 
patriotic, and the Society is formed for the particular purpose 
of perpetuating the memory of the men, who in military, naval 
and civil service of the Colonies, and of the Continental Con- 
gress, by their acts or counsel achieved the independence of 
the country, and to further the proper celebration of the anni- 
versaries of the birthday of Washington, and prominent events 
connected with the War of the Revolution; to collect and 
secure for preservation the manuscripts, records and other 
documents relating to that period; to inspire the members of 
the Society with the patriotic spirit of their forefathers, and 
to promote the feeling of fellowship among its members. 

ARTICLE III. 

MEMBERSHIP. 

Any male person above the age of twenty-one years shall be 
eligible to membership in this Society, who is descendant from 
an ancestor as the propositus, who, either as a military, naval 



Conafituficm. 17 

or marine officer, soldier, sailor or marine, or official in the 
service of any one of the thirteen original Colonies or States, 
or of the National Government representing or composed of 
those Colonies or States, assisted in establishing American 
Independence, during the War of the Revolution, between the 
19th day of April, 1775, when hostilities commenced, and the 
19th day of April, 1783, when they were ordered to cease. 

Provided, That when the claim of eligibility is based on the 
service of an ancestor in the Minutemen or Militia, it must be 
satisfactorily shown that such ancestor was actually called into 
the service of the State or United States, and performed gar- 
rison or field duty ; and — 

Provided further, That when the claim of eligibility is 
based on the service of an ancestor as a sailor or marine, it 
must in like manner be shown that such service was other 
than shore duty, and regularly performed in the Continental 
navy, or the navy of one of the thirteen original States, or on 
an armed vessel, other than a merchant ship, which sailed 
under letters of marque and reprisal, and that such ancestor of 
the applicant was duly enrolled in the ship's company, either 
as an officer, seaman, or otherwise than as a passenger ; and — 

Provided further, That when the claim of eligibility is based 
on the service of an ancestor as an official, such service must 
have been performed in the civil service of the United States, 
or of one of the thirteen original States, and must have been 
sufficiently important in character to have rendered the 
official specially liable to arrest and imprisonment, the same as 
a combatant, if captured by the enemy, as well as liable to 
conviction of treason against the Government of Great Britain. 

In the construction of this article the volunteer Aides-de- 
Camp of General Officers in Continental service who were duly 
announced as such, and who actually served in the field during 
a campaign, shall be comprehended as having performed quali- 
fying service. 

The Civil Officials and Military forces of the State of Ver- 
mont during the War of the Revolution shall also be compre- 



18 ^on6 of ffle (gmMion. 

bended in the same manner as if they had belonged to one of 
the thirteen original States. 

No service of an ancestor shall be deemed as qualifying 
service for membership in this Society where such ancestor, 
after assisting in the cause of American Independence, shall 
have subsequently either adhered to the enemy, or failed to 
maintain an honorable record throughout the War of the 
Revolution. 

No person shall be admitted as a member of this Society 
unless he be eligible under one of the provisions of this article, 
and unless of good moral character, and adjudged worthy of 
becoming a member.

Missouri, and shall be drawn thence on the check of the 
Treasurer for the purpose of the Society only. Out of these 
funds he shall pay such sums only as may be ordered by the 
Society or by the Board of Managers. He shall keep a true 



account of his receipts and payments, and at each annual

SECTION XIII. 

EXPULSION AND SUSPENSION. 

The Board of Managers shall have power to expel any 
enrolled member of this Society who, by conduct unbecoming 
a gentleman and a man of honor, or by an opposition to the 
interest of the community in general or of this Society in 
particular, may render himself unworthy to continue a member, 
or who shall persistently transgress or, without good excuse, 
wilfully neglect or fail in the performance of any obligation 
enjoined by the Constitution, By-Laws or any standing rule 
of this Society, provided that such member shall have received 
at least ten days' notice in writing of the complaint preferred 
against him, and of the time and place for hearing the same, 
and have been thereby afforded an opportunity to be heard 
in person. 

Whenever the cause of expulsion shall not have involved 
turpitude or moral unworthiness, any member thus expelled 
may, upon the unanimous recommendation of the Board of 
Managers, but not otherwise, be restored to membership by 
the Society at any meeting. 



The Board of Managers shall drop from the roll the name of 
any enrolled member of the Society who shall be two years in 
arrears in the payment of dues, and who, on notice to pay the 
same, shall fail and neglect to do so within thirty days there- 
after, and upon being thus dropped his membership shall cease 
and determine, but he may be restored to membership at any 
time by the Board of Managers, on his application therefor, and 
upon his payment of all such arrears and of the annual dues 
from the date when he was dropped to the date of his restora- 
tion. The Board of Managers may also suspend any officer 
from the performance of his duties for cause, which proceeding 
must be reported to the Society, and acted upon by it within 
thirty days, either by recision of the suspension or removal 
of the suspended officer from office, or otherwise the suspen- 
sion shall cease. 

SECTION XIV. 

RESIGNATION. 

No resignation or voluntary withdrawal from membership 
by any member enrolled in this Society shall become effective 
as a release from the obligations thereof, unless consented to 
and accepted by the Board of Managers. 

SECTION XV. 

DISQUALIFICATION. 

No person who may be enrolled as a member of the Society 
shall be permitted to continue in membership when the proofs 
of claim of qualification by descent shall be found to be 
defective and insufficient to substantiate such claim, or not 
properly authenticated ; the Society or the Board of Managers 
may at any time, after thirty days' notice to such person to 
properly substantiate or authenticate his claim, require the 
Secretary to erase his name from the list of members, and 
such person shall thereupon cease to be a member, provided he 
shall have failed to or neglected to comply satisfactorily with 
such notice.

Where the Board of Managers shall direct the erasure of a 
person's name for a cause comprehended under this section, 
such person shall have a right of appeal to the next annual 
meeting of the Society, but he shall not be restored to mem- 
bership, unless by a vote of three-fourths of the members 
present on that occasion, or at a subsequent meeting to which 
the consideration of the appeal may have been specifically 
postponed. 

SECTION XVI. 

SERVICE OF NOTICES. 

It shall be the duty of every member to inform the Secre-

post office address, and of any change thereof. 

Service of any notice under the Constitution or By-Laws, 
upon any member of the Society addressed by him at his last 
recorded place of residence or post office address, and 
forwarded by mail, shall be deemed sufficient service of such 
notice. 

SECTION XVII. 

DECEASE OF MEMBERS. 

Upon the decease of any member residing within the State 
of Missouri, notice thereof and of the time and place of the 
funeral shall be given by the Secretary by publication, and it 
shall thereupon become the duty of the members, when prac- 
ticable, to attend the obsequies. 

Any member upon being informed of the decease of a mem- 
ber shall make it his business to see that the Secretary is 
promptly notified of the fact by telegraph, which fact shall also 
in due time be communicated to the Society. 

SECTION XVIII. 

MARSHAL. 

The President of the Society may, from time to time in his 
discretion, designate a member to act under his direction as 



Marshal for the Society in its commemorative celebrations, 
parades and other meetings, and to perform such duties as 
usually appertain to such a position. 

SECTION XIX. 

CERTIFICATE OF MEMBERSHIP. 

Every member shall be entitled to receive a certificate of 
membership, which shall be authenticated by the President 
and Secretary, and countersigned by the Registrar of the 
Society, and to which the seal of the Sons of the Revolu- 
tion shall be affixed. The certificate shall be in form fol- 
lowing : 

SONS OF THE REVOLUTION

Be it known that in the right of the services 

of in the cause of American Independence during the 

War of the Revolution, has been duly admitted to membership 
in the Society of the "Sons of the Revolution" in the State of

SECTION XX. 

NOMINATING COMMITTEE. 

The President shall, sixty days previous to the annual meet- 
ing, appoint a committee of three, who, if practicable, should 
not be officers, to recommend to the Society a list of officers 
to be voted for; such recommendation, however, shall not 
prevent any member, present at the meeting, placing in nomi- 
nation any other member for any office.

SECTION XXL 

AUDITING COMMITTEE. 

The President shall, thirty days previous to the annual 
meeting, appoint an auditing committee of three, who shall

DELEGATES TO THE GENERAL SOCIETY. 

There shall be chosen at every annual meeting six delegates 
and six alternates to the General Society. 

SECTION XXIII. 

AMENDMENTS. 

No alteration of the By-Laws of the Society shall be made, 
unless such alteration shall have been proposed at a previous 
meeting, and shall be adopted by a majority of the members 
present at any meeting of the Society, five days' notice thereof 
having been given to each member. 



Instructions to Applicants. 



The application must be presented upon the forms issued by 
the Society. 

The record of the ancestor's military service should be given 
fully, but concisely. 

It is not necessary to show the pedigree any farther back 
than the ancestor who served in the war. 

The Society does not accept Encyclopedias, Genealogical 
Works, or Town or County Histories, except such as contain 
Rosters as authorities for proofs of service. 

In referring to printed works, the volume and page should 
be given. 

Reference to authorities, in manuscript, must be accompanied 
by certified copies, and authentic family records must be 
submitted, if required. 

Every application must be signed by the applicant, and 
sworn to by him, and it must be endorsed by two members of 
the Society. 

When the applicant is not personally known to any member 
of the Society, whom he can ask to recommend his application, 
he must submit to the Secretary, when he files his papers, the 
names of two reputable citizens of the State to whom he refers 
by permission. 

When an applicant claims descent from more than one 
Revolutionary ancestor, then "Supplementary" applications 
must be made for each ancestor. 

Supplementary claims are to be treated in form and pro- 
cedure precisely as original applications. No extra cost for 
filing supplementary claims. 

The Secretary, having had considerable experience in assist- 
ing gentlemen in making researches to find proof of ancestors' 
service, would caution applicants that very little dependence 
can be placed on "family tradition" as to the rank held by the 



1148486 



36 Jgons of f#e (Ket>ofution. 



ancestor. If family genealogies were to be taken as evidence, 
or the war stories handed down from one generation to another 
believed, it would demonstrate that the army of the Revolu- 
tionary War was composed of all Majors and Colonels. The 
soldiers of that struggle were held with such veneration by 
their neighbors and friends, that when they reached a good 
old age nearly all were dubbed, by courtesy, Major or Colonel, 
and family tradition has handed these courtesy titles down to 
posterity. Again, many were officers of Militia after the war 
and obtained titles that way. So, when the official records are 
examined they disclose an altogether different rank, or, as is 
often the case, no rank at all, and applicants are greatly 
disappointed. 

To begin to make a search for proofs, the applicant must 
know the State the ancestor served from, and in writing 
officials simply ask "for the military service of A. B., said to 
have been a soldier in the Revolutionary War," and they will 
inform you what rank they find and any other data the records 
show. Also, give the name of town or county he served from, 
if you know. And correspond with the following officials and 
others named, in the various States, for certificates of military 
service, and the fees for same : 

Vermont. This State has published a Roster which is in 
the Library of the Missouri Society. 

New Hampshire. This State has published a very com- 
plete Roster in four volumes, which are in the Library of the 
Missouri Society. 

Massachusetts. This State has published a very complete 
Roster in seventeen volumes, which are in the Library of the 
Missouri Society. 

Rhode Island. This State has published "Civil and Mili- 
tary List of Rhode Island, 1647- 1800." Contains a list of the 
civil and military officers elected by the General Assembly from 
1647 to 1800. It has no names of private soldiers. This vol- 
ume is in the Library of the Missouri Society. For service 
of private soldiers, write to the Secretary of State at Provi- 



3n*f ruction* to (&ppficant0. 37 

dence. No charge for making search, but where name is 
found the charge is $1.50 for furnishing certified record. 

Connecticut. This State has published a very complete 
Roster, containing 27,000 names, which volume is in the 
Library of the Missouri Society. 

New York. This State has published a very complete Ros- 
ter, "New York in the Revolution as Colony and State." Sec- 
ond edition containing 51,972 names — which volume is in the 
Library of the Missouri Society. 

New Jersey. This State has published a Roster, "Officers 
and Men of New Jersey in the Revolutionary War," which 
volume is in the Library of the Missouri Society. 

Pennsylvania. Write Hon. Luther R. Kelker, Custodian 
of Public Records, State Library, Harrisburg. No charge for 
making search or furnishing certificate of service. 

Delaware. Write to the Secretary of State, Dover. The 
charge for furnishing records is two cents per line and $1.00 
additional for certificate. The Missouri Society has a "His- 
tory of the Delaware State Society of the Cincinnati." Con- 
tains a Roster of the Officers of the Delaware Continental Regi- 
ments. The United States Pension Roll of the Delaware 
soldiers who drew pensions after the war is also in the Library 
of the Missouri Society. 

Maryland. This State has published a Roster, "Archives 
of Maryland," Vol. XVIII, which volume is in the Library of 
the Missouri Society. 

Virginia. The Virginia State Library has published a 
"List of Revolutionary Soldiers of Virginia," containing be- 
tween 35,000 and 36,000 names. The list is not complete, but 
it is hoped that further search may disclose additional names 
from time to time. This Book is in the Library of the Missouri 
Society. The Missouri Society also has the list of the Virginia 
Pensioners of the Revolution. Persons wanting further infor- 
mation, or genealogical work done in Virginia, can communi- 
cate with Mr. W. G. Stanard, 314 West Cary St., Richmond, 
Va.

North Carolina. The Revolutionary Rolls of this State 
are very meager. The Missouri Society Sons of the Revo- 
lution has in its Library "History of the North Carolina 
Continental Line, and Society of the Cincinnati," containing a 
Roster of the officers of the ten North Carolina Continental 
Regiments. * 

Also the Library has the "United States Pension Roll of 
North Carolina," which has the list of pensioners. 

Hon. Marshall De Lancey Haywood, Secretary of the North 
Carolina Society Sons of the Revolution, Raleigh, N. C, has 
prepared a valuable pamphlet "Designed to aid those who have 
occasion to search for records of the services of Revolutionary 
ancestors in North Carolina/' which pamphlet he will supply to 
anyone on payment of postage. 

South Carolina. Among the troops furnished by this 
State were ten regiments of Militia and four Continental Regi- 
ments, besides numerous bands of partisan rangers as those 
composing the commands of Marion and Sumpter. But the 
State has no rosters of these troops, and the principal records 
preserved are those of officers. General W. G. De Sassure has 
published a pamphlet containing "The names, as far as can be 
ascertained, of the officers who s'erved in the South Carolina 
regiments," reprinted in the Charleston Year Book of 1893, 
which is in the Library of the Missouri Society, and the 
following are also in the library: "Gregg's History of the 
Old Cheraws," and "Saffell's Records of the Revolutionary 
War," each containing some names of officers and privates 
from this State. Also, the United States pension roll, con- 
taining the names of many South Carolina soldiers who drew 
pensions. 

Georgia. Write Wm. Harden, Secretary Georgia Historical 
Society, Savannah, for information of Georgia soldiers. That 
Society has books and manuscripts which contains much useful 
information relating to the Revolutionary period. 



PENSIONS 



There were no pension laws passed by Congress until the 
year 1818, excepting for the relief of those disabled in the 
service, so that all who were not disabled, and who died pre- 
vious to the year 1818 drew no pensions. The first pension 
act of 1 81 8 granted pensions to those only who had served 
nine months or more in the Continental Army or Navy (the 
"Continental Army" must not be confounded with the State 
troops, Militia or Minutemen). Under this act of 1818, about 
eight thousand men applied for pensions, which number so 
alarmed Congress that it passed, in 1820, what became known 
as the "Alarm" act, which required that before the benefici- 
aries of the act of 1818 could longer receive its benefits they 
must go before some court and make a schedule of their prop- 
erty, and affirm that they were in "need of the assistance of 
their country for a support." The effect of this "Alarm" act 
was that large numbers had their pride touched, after making 
so many sacrifices and enduring such hardships for the Nation, 
and they refused to exhibit to the world their estate, while 
others could not make oath that they were in need of their 
country's assistance, so we find in the pension records after 
many names "dropped under the act of 1820," and the survi- 
vors were not restored until several years after. 

The number of pensioners having become so reduced by 
death, Congress, in 1832, passed an act granting pensions to 
all officers and soldiers, whether Continental, State or Militia, 
who had served for any period not less than six months. Even 
this act left out many who had served acceptably for a period 
of less than six months. 

The widows of Revolutionary soldiers drew pensions, pro- 
vided they were married prior to 1853, so that the military 
record of the soldier who did not draw a pension himself can 
be found through the papers filed by the widow. 



40 £one cf tfle QRtet>ofutiott 

The Missouri Society has procured the following rare and 
valuable Public Documents, giving lists of pensioners: 

"Senate Documents, Twenty -Third Congress, First Session, 
J'ols. 12, 13, 14," being the pension roll of 1835, and contains 
the names of all who had been placed on the roll to that date, 
about 90,000 names. 

''Census of Revolutionary Pensioners of 1840," containing 
the list of the Pensioners that were alive in 1840, about 34,000 
names. 

If applicants have reason to believe their ancestors drew a 
pension under the acts of 1818 and 1832, if they will request 
the Secretary of the Missouri Society, he will make an exam- 
ination of these pension rolls to see if he can find the name. 
But applicants must be particular to inform him where the 
supposed pensioner was living when he was drawing a pension 
between the years 1818 and 1840, also what State he served 
from during the war. These pension rolls are not arranged 
alphabetically, only by States, hence the necessity of knowing 
what State the pensioner lived in when drawing his pension. 

If the Secretary finds the name he will inform the applicant, 
who can then write the Honorable Commissioner of Pensions, 
at Washington, asking for a copy of the ancestor's military 
history. There is no cost attached for obtaining this data 
from the Commissioner, and it usually takes about thirty days 
to get a reply. 

A mistaken idea prevails that there is on file in the Adjutant- 
General's office, in Washington, complete Rosters of the soldiers 
of the Revolutionary War, and that it is only necessary to 
write to that department to obtain a record of the ancestor's 
service. There are no complete Rosters of the Revolutionary 
soldiers in any department of the Government, nor anywhere 
else. The Rosters that were on file in the War Department 
were lost by the destruction of the temporary building, in which 
they were stored, by fire, in 1800, and again by the burning 
of the public buildings, by the British, in 1814. 



(pension*. 41 



The records remaining in the different departments at Wash- 
ington containing the names of Revolutionary soldiers have 
been transferred to the office of the Adjutant General, War 
Department, who will furnish, free of charge, the record of any 
Revolutionary soldier on the rolls of his office. The Adjutant- 
General requires an applicant for information to give the name 
of the State the ancestor served from, also to give the relation- 
ship of the ancestor to the applicant, and the purpose for which 
he desires the information. 

The most complete Rosters are found in the Archives of the 
old original thirteen States, and these in some instances are 
only fragmentary, some States having lost their entire Rosters. 
So when the records of whole regiments are lost it is not 
strange that an individual name cannot always be found. 

The fees should, in all cases, accompany the inquiry made 
of officials, who will return the money where no charge is made 
for research. 

The Secretary of the Missouri Society makes no charge 
for an examination of the volumes or documents in the 
Library of the Society, to assist applicants to become members 
of the Society.

Born April 27, 1838. 
Died December 24, 1909. 



John Andrew Jackson Shultz was born in Grantsville, 
Maryland, April 27th, 1838, and died at his home, 4407 Wash- 
ington Avenue, St. Louis, December 24th, 1909. He was the 
son of Adam Shultz and Nancy Shockey Shultz. 

He received his education in the private schools of Grants- 
ville, and at an early age became associated in the tanning 
business with his father. 

In 1864 he came to St. Louis, and engaged in the tanning 
business. In 1877 he organized the Shultz Belting Company, 
of which he was President until the time of his death. 

Mr. Shultz was married in 1859 to Miss Mary E. Brown, of 
Grantsville, and whose death preceded him by a year. Six 
children survive this union, two sons and four daughters. 

He was one of the founders of St. Mark's Evangelical 
English Lutheran Church, and was one of the faithful at- 
tendants at all of the services, devoting much of his time and 
means to the upbuilding of church work. 

Mr. Shultz was a member of the Mercantile Club, and only a 
short time before his death had been re-elected to serve a second 
term as President of the Missouri Manufacturers' Association. 

The funeral was held from St. Mark's Lutheran Church, 
December 27th, 1909. 

Mr. Shultz was one of the founders of the Missouri Society, 
Sons of the Revolution, and took great interest in all affairs 
pertaining to it, having been a member of the Board of 
Managers, his right to membership being through the service 
of his grandfather, Christian Shockey, Private in the Com- 
pany of Captain John Doyle, 1st Pennsylvania Regiment, 1777; 
was wounded at the Battle of the Cowpens ; was at the Battle 
of Trenton, and at the surrender of Cornwallis, serving to the 
close of the war.

Rev. George Dana Boardman Miller was born at Holley, 
Orleans County, New York, August 4th, 1834. Died in St. 
Louis, Mo., April 24th, 1910. 

His eligibility to the Sons of the Revolution was derived 
through the service of his great-grandfather, Private Elipha- 
let Stickney, Private in Colonel Samuel Herrick's Vermont 
Regiment; also Private in Colonel Walbridge's Vermont 
Militia. 

Mr. Miller was ordained a minister in the Episcopal Church, 
and went to the Parish of Christ Church, Butternuts, New 
York, contiguous to that of Rev. Daniel S. Tuttle, when the 
latter was made Bishop of Montana, Idaho and Utah. Mr. 
Miller, who had meanwhile married the younger sister of Mrs. 
Tuttle, offered to go with him to the West. He became rector 
of St. Michael's Church, Boise, Idaho, in 1867, and remained in 
charge six years. He and Mrs. Miller then went to the Ori- 
ent as missionaries, staying in Japan and China three years, 
when they returned to Salt Lake City and took charge of St. 
Mark's School, which had been built up under Bishop Tuttle. 
A year after the latter was translated from Utah to Missouri, 
Mr. Miller followed his brother-in-law, and became the rec- 
tor of St. Augustine's Church. As rector there he wrought 
faithfully and acceptably for twenty years, and until a few 
months before his death. He was an undemonstrative and 
scholarly man, and by his devotion and sympathy was for all 
the years of his service a much-loved pastor and teacher.

Born September 3, 1836. 
Died may 18, 1910. 



Francis Henry Ludington passed through the stages of suc- 
cessive advancement to a position of distinction in business 
circles and was President of the H. & L. Chase Bag Company 
since 1895. He was born in Boston, Massachusetts, Septem- 
ber 3rd, 1836. His ancestral history is notable from the fact 
that many were connected with the colonial wars and with the 
war of the Revolution. 

Mr. Ludington's eligibility in the Sons of the Revolution was 
derived through the service of his great-grandfather, Jonathan 
Harrington, Second-Lieutenant of the 6th Worcester County, 
Massachusetts, Regiment ; also through the service of his great- 
great-grandfather, Captain Ross Wyman, Captain of the 
Artillery in Colonel Jonathan Ward's Massachusetts Regiment. 

He attended successively the grammar schools of Boston, 
Massachusetts ; Philips Academy, at Andover ; the Middleboro 
(Mass.) Academy, and the Bridgewater Normal School, at 
Bridgewater, Massachusetts, from which he was graduated 
in i860. At the age of sixteen he accepted a position at a 
salary of a dollar and a half per week and boarded at home, 
his daily service being from half-past six in the morning until 
nine at night. It was necessary that he start in business life 
at this early age because of the death of his father. Desiring 
to improve upon his intellectual attainment at that time, he left 
the grocery business and attended a special school in Boston,

later continuing his studies as previously indicated, always 
meeting the expenses of his course by his own labor. He 
likewise engaged in teaching school in Houlton, Maine ; Wey- 
mouth, Massachusetts, and Bridgewater and Maiden, of the 
same State. 

His time was thus passed from 1862 until 1866, when he 
engaged with H. & L. Chase, of Boston, Massachusetts, to 
represent their mercantile interests in St. Louis. He arrived 
in this city on the nth of October, 1866, and succeeded in ably 
managing the business of the house at this point, making it a 
profitable trade center. Following the death of the partners 
the old firm was dissolved and the business was reorganized 
under the name of the H. & L. Chase Bag Company, with F. H. 
Ludington as President. He so continued until 19 10, and under 
his guidance and discriminating direction the business pros- 
pered, being recognized as one of the representative com- 
mercial interests of the city. He was also financially interested 
in the Third National Bank, and was one of its directors. 

Mr. Ludington by no means confined his attention to in- 
terests bearing solely upon his financial welfare, but co-operated 
in many movements whereby social, educational and moral 
progress have been augmented. In the earlier years of its 
existence he was a director of the Young Men's Christian 
Association, and was also formerly a director of the Provident 
Association. He belonged to the Second Baptist Church, and 
since 1867 was treasurer, deacon and trustee. In politics he 
was a stalwart Republican, and in more specifically social lines 
was connected with the St. Louis, Mercantile, Noonday and 
Glen Echo Clubs.

Richard Edward Turner was born in Culpepper County, 
Virginia, on August 25th, 1830, and died at St. Joseph, Mo., 
on September 15th, 19 10. He was the son of Zephannah 
Turner (who served in the war of 1812) and Susannah Tutt. 

When he was nine years of age his father, attracted by the 
glowing reports from the new West, moved to Ohio, where 
he remained a short time, and then came on to Missouri and 
located in Cooper County. The opportunities for acquiring an 
education were then very meager, so that Richard's schooling 
was necessarily limited, and he began business life at fourteen 
years of age as clerk in a country store in Callaway County, 
and continued in active business until about fifteen years before 
his death. 

His career, in an age of marvelous deeds, was in itself 
remarkable. Before reaching his majority he had taken an 
emigrant train overland to California, living as a Gentile among 
Mormons, and crossing the Beckworth Pass. He returned to 
St. Joseph and within ten years had founded a mercantile 
house bearing his name, The Turner, Frazer Mercantile Co., 
which grew to be one of the largest and most favorably known 
of the Missouri River wholesale grocery houses. When he 
retired from active commercial life this business was taken 
over and is still continued by the Letts-Spencer Grocer Co. 
He also found time to act as President of the Merchants' 



234 3* QJtetnoriam. 



Bank, which still exists as a monument to his conservative 
and safe business principles. 

His career early united itself with the progress of his own 
St. Joseph. He was one of the builders of the first street 
railway, and a promoter of the first railroad west from St. 
Joseph and the bridge across the Missouri River. He pro- 
jected the railroad southeast from St. Joseph, now the Santa 
Fe. For years he managed ably and without charge the 
affairs of many helpless women. He was vitally alive to all 
civic progress. 

He was an active and prominent member of the First Baptist 
Church, and was President of the corporation of the church 
until his death. He also took a great interest in the welfare 
of the Baptist College, William Jewell, located at Liberty, Mo., 
and gave liberally both of his time and substance for its 
upbuilding. For thirty-five years he was a Trustee, and for 
twelve years President of the Trustees of William Jewell. 
Here he was held in such reverence and esteem that the college 
magazine recently published a memorial to him, in which he is 
called the Seer of William Jewell. 

He never married, but used his all for his dear ones and for 
the church and for humanity. In all and through all there 
was the dominant strain of the Virginia gentleman, the heroic 
traits of the sturdy pioneer, the keen mind and quick wit of the 
man of the world refined by real nobleness and glorified by 
absolute honesty. 

Mr. Turner's eligibility in the Sons of the Revolution was 
derived through the service of his great-grandfather, Hezekiah 
Turner, Paymaster of the 3rd Virginia, from September, 1777, 
to May, 1778.

Israel Putnam Dana, a prominent member of the Kansas 
City bar, was born at Danville, Vermont, August 12th, 1849. 
He was educated in the Vermont public schools, and at An- 
dover Academy, and later entered Harvard College. He was 
admitted to the Vermont bar in 1881, and the following year 
located in Kansas City, where he stood in the front rank of the 
bar of the city and State, until he was forced by ill-health to 
practically retire from active practice about two years before 
his death. He was a member of the Kansas City Club, the 
Country Club, Arts and Crafts Society, and other clubs. He 
was a member of the Society Sons of the Revolution in the 
State of Missouri from the first year of its organization in 
1894 until his death, and was President of the Kansas City 
Chapter of the Society, 1 896-1 897. 

The Chapter has attested, by suitable resolutions, "That he 
was a man of the purest character and loftiest ideals, and in 
every phase of life measured up to the highest standard." 

Mr. Dana's right to membership in the Society was derived 
through the service of his great-great-grandfather, and for

Nicholas Waggener Casey, a charter member of the Kan- 
sas City Chapter, Sons of the Revolution, was born in Union 
County, Kentucky, August 3rd, 1826. 

When he was fifteen years old, through his family's friend- 
ship with Governor Letcher, Mr. Casey was given a position in 
the State Auditor's office at Frankfort, Kentucky. He remained 
there six years, when he returned to Caseyville, Union County, 
to open coal mines which had been discovered on property 
belonging to him through a Revolutionary grant to his family. 

December 13th, 1853, he married Eliza McCall Taylor, of 
Jefferson County, Kentucky. They had seven children, four 
of whom, Samuel Lewis Casey, Mrs. John Van Brunt, Miss 
Josephine Gibson Casey and Miss Faith Casey, survive him. 

Before the Civil War Mr. Casey was one of the largest coal 
operators in the Ohio Valley. The opening of the war found 
him a Union sympathizer in a Confederate community. In 
spite of his difficult position Mr. Casey bore himself with a 
dignity which characterized him throughout his life, and he 
was never attacked by those who differed from him. 

Mr. Casey moved to New Orleans in 1873, where he lived 
until 1885, when he came to Kansas City. He was a vestry- 
man of Grace Episcopal Church, and for several years a 
Director of the Provident Association. 

Mr. Casey's right to membership in the Sons of the Revo- 
lution was derived through the service of his great-grandfather, 
Major Andrew Waggener, Major of the Virginia State Troops ;

also through the service of his great-grandfather, Captain

vice of his great-great-grandfather, Colonel George Taylor, 
commanding the Orange County, Virginia, Militia ; also through 
the service of his grandfather, Private John Finnie, of Colonel 
Uriah Springer's Company, Virginia State Troops. 

The following tribute to the memory of this much loved man 
appeared in The Kansas City Star of November 29th, 19 10, 
signed "One to Whom He Was Kind :" 

"A rich endowment of the courtly grace of days gone by was 
lost when Nicholas W. Casey died yesterday at his home. 
Since his coming to Kansas City from New Orleans in 1885, 
Mr. Casey occupied a peculiar place in the affections of his 
friends, his fellow churchmen and those whom he touched in 
his daily walk. Especially will he be remembered for the 
urbane demeanor of a gentleman of the old South, from which 
he brought to the early society of this community rugged health, 
a cheery, uplifting helpfulness for his neighbor, and a quiet, 
whimsical humor. His consideration for others, with not the 
smallest courtesy unobserved, was a habit worn daily and dom- 
inated his whole character. His unfailing chivalry to women, 
young and old, and the gracious manners revealing this sincere 
deference and high breeding, were an example to be emulated 
by the hurrying, sometimes thoughless, youth of a modern day. 
A wonderful patience filled these later weeks when suffering 
was borne with a soldier courage and all his strength was 
taxed to bear the burden cheerfully that those who loved him 
might suffer less. 

"After eighty-four years of gentle and excellent life, his 
unselfish, brave and gallant spirit honors those whose rich 
heritage is his memory."

Colonel John Fulkerson Tyler was born in Lee County, Va., 
on September 12th, 1838. His father, Henry C. Tyler, was a 
merchant of Jonesville, and also operated stores in other por- 
tions of Lee County. His mother's maiden name was Fulker- 
son, and John Fulkerson was their only child. He was 
educated at the Virginia Military Institute, Lexington, at that 
time superintended by General Francis H. Smith. He was 
the ninth graduate in a class of twenty-nine, in 1859. ^ n the 
same year he moved to Missouri, settling at Lexington, where 
he engaged in teaching until after the breaking out of the 
Civil War. He studied law in the office of Hon. J. F. Ryland, 
of Lexington, while he was engaged in teaching. Being 
a staunch Union man, he enlisted in the 14th Missouri 
Volunteers, commanded by Colonel White. He was almost 
immediately after elected Major in that Regiment, and he 
was subsequently captured with Mulligan's command in the 
battle of Lexington, before being mustered into service. On 
being exchanged he was appointed Aid-de-Camp, with the rank 
of Major, on General Scofield's staff. In 1862 he was promoted

Mr. Tyler was married in 1862 to Miss Jane E. Spratt, of 
Lexington, Mo. They had four children, none of whom sur- 
vive him. Colonel Tyler was in every sense a student, and 
though at all times a successful business man, he found 
opportunity till the last days of his life to study and read much. 
He could converse in German and in French. He was a 
student of history and political economy. He was a ready man 
and had command of his knowledge upon various subjects. 
His Southern birth brought inbred courtesy and politeness to 
everybody. His happy disposition shed sunshine and pleasure 
upon those with whom he mingled. He loved his fellow men 
and was never happier than when commingling with and 
associating amongst his friends. He was unostentatious and 
without undue pride. He was the same at all times, and never 
feigned other than he knew himself to be. He was charitable 
almost to a fault. Years may come and years may go, but so 
strong was the personality of Colonel John F. Tyler that all 
those who came in contact with him will remember him as a 
man of force and character. He was a doer of deeds, and left 
no sting or unpleasantness in the minds of those with whom he 
dealt. He was a christian, and a member of the First Presby- 
terian Church of St. Joseph, Missouri, and in the early history 
of the church was superintendent of the Sunday School.

Ibon* Eugene jTttcb Mare, 



BORN MAY 29, 184! 
DIED JULY I, 1911. 



Eugene Fitch Ware was born in Hartford, Connecticut, May 
29th, 1841. He was a lawyer, poet, soldier and statesman. 
Our countrymen at large knew him as such, but those among 
us who knew him well loved to think of him as a man and of 
his great capacity for friendship. Kindly sympathy was back 
of his genial manner and tender-heartedness back of his 
reserve. He was not quite twenty years of age when the 
Civil War broke out, and he enlisted in the 1st Iowa Infantry, 
participating in the Battle of Wilson's Creek. When this 
three-months regiment was mustered out, he re-enlisted in the 
4th Iowa Cavalry, and later in the 7th until he was mustered 
out in 1866 ; thus he served during the entire war and after- 
wards for more than a year in the Indian country. During 
his services as Lieutenant and Captain of Cavalry, he was 
Aid-de-Camp, successively, to Generals Mitchell, Elliott, Stoll- 
brand and Dodge. He was a member of the Loyal Legion. 
He belonged also to the Sons of the Revolution and the 
Mayflower Society. Mr. Ware is better known to some of us 
as a lawyer ; to others as a writer. After admission to the bar 
in 1871 he practiced law for several years in Fort Scott, Kan- 
sas, for which city he collected, organized and gave a public 
library. He was always interested in public education and 
public welfare. In his earlier career he was twice elected to 
the State Senate. In 1893 he moved to Topeka, and fourteen 
years afterwards to Kansas City, Kansas. In 1902, at the 
earnest solicitation of the President, Mr. Ware reluctantly set 
aside his law practice and time desired for writing and became 
Commissioner of Pensions, a position that needed a strong man 
of legal executive ability. He resigned January 1st, 1905. 

It was Mr. Ware, the lawyer, who wrote "From Court 
to Court," a treatise on procedure in the United States Supreme 



242 3* (Btemorfom. 



Court, and who translated "The Roman Water Law" from the 
Latin of the Pandects of Justinian. 

It was Mr. Ware, the poet, who wrote the "Rhymes of 
Ironquill ;" many of the rhymes had appeared from time to 
time in newspapers and magazines, under the pen name of 
"Ironquill," before they were collected in book form, after 
which they ran through fourteen American and three English 
editions. His poetry is varied — humorous and political verse, 
with its rare common sense ; imaginative verse, with its word- 
painting, and more serious verse, with philosophic thought. 
Throughout his poetry there is sympathy, sincerity and high 
ideals expressed in trenchant and rhythmical verse. 

Among other of his writings are : "The Lyon Campaign," 
a history of the ist Iowa Infantry; 'Tthuriel," a psychological 
poem in prose, and a translation from the French of Fernaux- 
Compans, of Castenada's account of the discovery of Kansas 
by Coronada. 

Mr. Ware was very happy in his home life, having married 
Miss Jeanette Huntington in 1874. One son and three 
daughters survive. 

He died suddenly July ist, 1911, at his summer home in 
Cascade Canyon, Colorado. His book entitled "Indian Wars 
of 1864" had just been received from the publishers a few 
days before, and fresh manuscript was almost ready. 

He was laid to rest in the stately National Cemetery in 
Fort Scott, Kansas, in a park-like plot reserved by the War 
Department, as a tribute of honor. 

Mr. Ware's right to membership in the Sons of the 
Revolution was derived through the service of his great- 
grandfather, Robert Ware, Private in the Company of Captain 
Samuel Cowell, Colonel John Smith's Massachusetts Regiment, 
and of his great-grandfather, drummer, Andrew Blunt, and 
of his great-great-grandfather, Captain John Blunt, and of his 
great-great-grandfather, Sergeant Benjamin Monk.

Jesse Baughman Ferris was born in Brownstown, Indiana, 
July 13th, 1 86 1. His father, Martin Ferris, died when he was 
about eight years old, which used up all their resources and 
left the widow and child in straitened circumstances. They 
spent two years with the parental grandfather, Jesse O. Ferris, 
at Mt. Clemens, Michigan, where he attended school. The 
mother becoming dissatisfied, they returned to her father's 
home, where his education was greatly neglected, he having to 
help support his mother, until she married again. He was 
then too old to attend school, but had used much midnight 
oil studying and reading; was very fond of the latter, and 
acquired a wonderful command of the English language, and 
was well versed on almost any topic. He was a self-made 
man, and in 1880 he successfully passed a teacher's examination 
and taught for a short time in Brownstown, Indiana. His 
first ancestors on his father's side landed on Manhattan Island 
in 1640, and five ancestors served in the Revolution. He drew 
the design for the grave-markers for the graves of the Revo-

lutionary soldiers, which has been adopted by the State of 
Michigan, D. A. R., as the legal marker for such graves. 

His first business venture was a small grocery store in 
Brownstown, but he soon gave that up and got a position as 
traveling salesman for the U. S. Playing Card Company, of 
Cincinnati, with which he was connected for nearly thirty 
years, and up to the time of his death. He had elevated 
himself by strict appliance to duty and untiring efforts to the 
office of special representative of the same firm. He was 
always kind and helping toward others. He was married 
three times ; the first wife was Miss Caroline Harris, the second 
was Miss Helen Melford, and the third, to whom he was 
married on October 6th, 191 1, was Miss Jennie M. Wehrum, 
a daughter of a member of the Loyal Legion of the State of 
New York. 

Mr. Ferris' membership in the Sons of the Revolution was 
through the service of his great-grandfather, Jonathan Ferris, 
Sergeant in the Regiment of Lieutenant-Colonel' Joseph 
Benedict, of Westchester County, New York, Militia, and his 
great-great-grandfather, Jesse Owen, Private in the Company 
of Captain George Lane, Colonel Henry Luddington's New

still a boy, Mr. Hill was appointed Regimental Ordnance 
Sergeant. He served throughout the entire period of the war 
and in many of its fiercest battles. At one time he was taken 
prisoner, but exchanged after six or seven months. Upon the 
surrender in May, 1865, near Greensboro, North Carolina, Mr. 
Hill retired with rank of Captain. A few months later he 
came to St. Louis, where he lived the succeeding forty-seven 
years, or until his death at his residence, 5297 Westminster 
Place, on the evening of Sunday, January 7th, 1912. During 
the earliest years of Mr. Hill's career in St. Louis he traveled 
for several of the oldest and largest wholesale grocery and 
dry goods concerns in the city. A few years later he organized

ful and courteous to all visitors, and wide in his sympathies, 
and abundant in his charity, "with good will to all and hate 
toward none." He was a conservative and discriminating 
collector of books and beautiful objects, a quiet and deep 
student of science, with a marked bent for philology ; no vices 
and possessed of all the better attributes of man. He was 
deeply interested in the Missouri Society, Sons of the Revo- 
lution, his last active service being as delegate to the triennial 
meeting of the General Society in Washington, D. C, in 1909. 
He was laid to rest in a vault in Greenwood Cemetery in 
Baltimore, later to be placed in a mausoleum now being erected 
in the Grandview Cemetery, in his native town, Chillicothe, 
Ohio. 

His wife preceded him to the Beyond, having died in El 
Paso, Texas, in 1896. 

Mr. James' right to membership in the Society, Sons of 
the Revolution, was through the service of his great-grand- 
father, Abraham George Claypoole, Captain in the 3rd and nth 
Pennsylvania Regiment; original member of the Cincinnati.

Stoughton Walker was born in Gill, Massachusetts, June 
3rd, 1866, and was the eldest son of General Francis A. 
Walker, President of the Massachusetts Institute of Tech- 
nology, and grandson of Amasa Walker, a noted author on 
political economy. His mother, who survives him, was Exene 
Evelyn Stoughton, a descendant from the well-known New 
England families of Stoughton-Edward Edwards (Johnathan 
Edwards and Aaron Burr were of the same family), Wads- 
worth and Eastman (of which Daniel Webster was a member). 

Mr. Walker was an alumnus of the Massachusetts Institute 
of Technology, of which he was a member of the Advisory 
Council. After leaving the Institute he was connected with 
the Traffic Department of the Boston & Albany Railroad and 
Union Pacific Railway. He was also the Western Superin- 
tendent of the American Telephone and Telegraph Company, 
and built part of the first long-distance line between New 
York and Chicago. 

Mr. Walker was united in marriage to Miss Jesse Brittain, 
at St. Joseph, Mo., October 21st, 1891, to which union there 
were born four children, Brittain, Mildred, Francis and 
Stoughton. 

In 1894 he entered the mercantile business at St. Joseph 
and at the time of his death was Treasurer of the John S. 
Brittain Dry Goods Co. For some years he was connected 
with the National Guard of the State of Missouri, holding 
several commissions, the last of which was Major and 
Assistant Inspector-General. The military spirit was strong 
in him and he was a thorough and efficient officer. It was 
but natural that he should be so, for the military records of 
his ancestors from the Colonial period to the Civil War are 
such that volumes could be written about them. His father,

Francis A. Walker, served throughout the Civil War with 
the Army of the Potomac, and at one time was Adjutant- 
General to General Hancock. 

Stoughton Walker was one of the best types of that splendid 
American citizenship which comes to the West from New 
England. From his Puritan lineage he inherited a thorough- 
ness and integrity that characterized all his intercourse with 
the world, and yet his gentleness of manner, his consideration 
of the feelings of others, bespoke the chivalric nature of his 
soul. His tastes were educated and refined and his tempera- 
ment highly artistic; his mentality keen, but sensitive and 
delicately poised; his manner, whether in business or among 
his friends, or in the quiet atmosphere of his home, was always 
reserved, but genial and charming; his home life was ideal. 
The devoted wife, who presided over his home, and the 
children who adorned it, were ever the subject of his tender 
solicitude; his closest friends saw in him not only culture, 
but a delicate blending of all those qualities of heart and mind 
that make the perfect gentleman. Mr. Walker was accidentally 
drowned at sea, April 14th, 1912, while returning from a trip 
abroad. He is survived by his wife, his daughter Mildred, 
and his sons Brittain and Stoughton. Mr. Walker was a 
member of the Society of the Sons of the Revolution through 
the services of his great-great-grandfather, Phineas Walker, 
Ensign of the 6th Company, nth Regiment, Connecticut 
Militia ; and of his great-great-grandfather, Samuel Stoughton, 
Lieutenant in the 5th Regiment, Hampshire County, Massa- 
chusetts, Troops; and of his great-great-grandfather, Amasa 
Carpenter, Sergeant nth Regiment, Connecticut Militia; and 
his great-great-grandfather, Moses Eastman, Lieutenant of the 
Winter Hill Company, New Hampshire Troops ; and his great- 
great-grandfather, Joseph Eastman, Private in Gerrish's New 
Hampshire Regiment ; and his great-great-grandfather, Reuben 
Stearns, Private in Durkee's Massachusetts Regiment ; and his 
great-great-grandfather, William Bigelow, Private in Spar- 
hawk's Massachusetts Regiment.

Charles Melville Hays, lost at sea by the Titanic disaster, 
April 15th, 1912, was born in Rock Island, Illinois, on the 
1 6th day of May, 1856, his parents being Samuel and Sarah 
Elizabeth Hays. He was educated in the High School at 
St. Joseph, Missouri, and the Mantua Academy at Phila- 
delphia; he also took a course of instruction at Crittenden's 
Business College at Philadelphia. 

In 1 88 1, he married Clara J. Gregg (daughter of William H. 
Gregg, of St. Louis, Mo.), by whom he had four children, 
Marjorie (now Mrs. Geo. D. Hall, of Boston), Orion (now 
Mrs. Thornton Davidson, of Montreal), Louise M. (now Mrs. 
Harold Grier, of Montreal), and Clara G. (now Mrs. Hope 
Scott, of Montreal). 

He began his life's work in the Auditor's office of the Atlantic 
& Pacific (and leased lines) R. R. in 1873 and rapidly arose to 
a commanding position in railroad circles, in 1889 having won 
the position of Vice-President and General Manager of the 
entire Wabash System. In January, 1896, he was made 
General Manager of the Grand Trunk System, and five years 
later accepted the Presidency of the Southern Pacific, suc- 
ceeding the late Collis P. Huntington. He remained in this 
position for one year, when the position became distasteful to 
him, and he was again secured by the Grand Trunk System, 
becoming its Vice-President and General Manager, and finally 
its President, which office he held at the time of his death. 

Was also President of the Grand Trunk Western Railway ; 
the Detroit, Grand Haven & Milwaukee Railway; the Toledo, 
Saginaw & Muskegon Railway ; the Michigan Air Line Rail- 
way ; Chicago, Detroit & Grand Trunk Junction Railway ;

Detroit & Toledo Shore Line; Southern New England Rail- 
way Company ; Canadian Express Company ; St. Clair Tunnel 
Company; International Bridge Company; Montreal Ware- 
housing Company; Portland Elevator Company, and the New 
England Elevator Company. 

He also represented the Grand Trunk Western Railway, as 
a Director of the Chicago & Western Indiana Railway, and 
Belt Railway, Chicago. 

In 1905 Mr. Hays was made President of the Grand Trunk 
Pacific. He was a member of the Permanent Committee of 
the International Railway Congress, and a Director of the 
United States Mortgage and Trust Company. 

The Emperor of Japan, in 1907, honored him with the 
decoration of the Order of the Rising Sun (third class). 

In 1903 he was a delegate to the Imperial Trade Congress. 
He was one of the founders of the Mount Royal Club, 
Montreal, in 1906. 

Other positions he held, including those of President of the 
G. T. R. Insurance and Provincial Society, a Governor of the 
Montreal General Hospital, a Governor of the Royal Victoria 
Hospital, a Governor of the McGill University, a Director of 
the Royal Trust Company and of the Merchants' Bank of 
Canada, a Director of the Montreal Horticultural and Fruit- 
Growing Association, a Director of the Canadian Board of the 
London and Lancashire Life Assurance Company. 

Mr. Hays' right to membership in the Society, Sons of the 
Revolution, was through the service of his great-grandfather, 
Jonathan Ford Morris, Lieutenant 4th Continental Artillery, 
and Surgeon's Mate in 1780; also through his great-great- 
grandfather, Joseph Morris, Captain in 1st New Jersey Regi- 
ment. 

The Montreal papers published extensive and fitting com- 
ments on his life and character, showing the appreciation in 
which he was held by the people of Canada and Great Britain.

Norman Fullin wider Terry, M. D., was born in Kossuth, 
Iowa, October 3rd, 1853, the youngest of the six children of 
Sherman and Leah Jane (Bruce) Terry. He married Leora 
Hibler, of St. Louis, Missouri, February 3rd, 1881. When he 
was a small child his parents moved to Mt. Pleasant, Iowa, 
where he was educated in the public schools and the Iowa 
Wesleyan University, being a member of Zeta Theta Pi 
fraternity in that institution. 

After completing his college course he taught for about 
two years in the public schools in order to raise money to 
continue his studies in medicine, as it had been his ambition 
from early boyhood to be a physician. He was graduated 
with honor from the Miami Medical College in Cincinnati, 
Ohio, in 1876, and in 1893 he took a post-graduate course at 
the Chicago Polyclinic Medical School. He began the practice 
of medicine in Northern Iowa. Owing to poor health of his 
father, the family removed to Lyons, Kansas, whither Dr. 
Terry accompanied them, and where he built up a large and 
successful medical practice. While there he was local surgeon 
for the Santa Fe and Frisco Railway Systems. His increasing 
success developed more strongly the desire to make surgery 
his life-work, and in order to enlarge his field of labor he 
went to Springfield, Missouri, in 1894, where he resided until 
his death, April 17th, 1912. 

Dr Terry grew steadily in his chosen specialty and soon 
enjoyed the reputation of being one of the foremost surgeons 
in the Southwest. The constantly increasing calls for outside 



3n ©Xemoriam. 255 



work made clear to him the necessity of a hospital for receiv- 
ing patients in Springfield, and he was successful in enlisting 
the co-operation of other physicians for establishing such an 
institution, with a training school for nurses added to it. 
This hospital, of which he was President and founder, several 
times enlarged to meet increasing demands, stands today as 
one of the memorials of Dr. Terry's life and work in Missouri. 

Among the more important organizations to which he 
belonged may be mentioned the Association of Railway 
Surgeons, Missouri State Medical Association, American 
Medical Association, and the Springfield and Greene County 
Medical Society, of which he was at one time President. He 
was a charter member of the Springfield Club, and of the 
Springfield Chapter of the Society of the Sons of the Revo- 
lution. 

While Dr. Terry was modest and unassuming in his bear- 
ing, he was always anxious to progress. In the midst of his 
exacting duties he for several years found time to give lectures 
on physiology to advanced students in Drury College. He 
wrote numerous papers for the various organizations to which 
he belonged, and left in manuscript a work of fiction which 
was intended to portray his ideal of the true man in medical 
practice. To the few friends permitted to read from this 
unpublished book, it has seemed that the modesty, purity and 
simplicity of the life of the hero, with his desire to do good, 
his generosity toward the poor and his ambition to grow in 
his profession must have an autobiographical interest, which 
the writer, however, disclaimed. 

Dr. Terry was a charter member of the Springfield Chapter 
of the Society of the Sons of the Revolution through the 
service of his ancestor, The Hon. Richard Bond, House of 
Delegates, Cecil County, Maryland.

BORN APRIL 28, 1861. 
DIED JUNE II, 1912. 



Walter Albert Bixby was born at Ironton, Ohio, April 
28th, 1861, and died at Springfield, Missouri, June nth, 1912. 
He was a second son in a family of eight children born to 
Edwin and Elizabeth (Fish) Bixby. He was married at 
Galena, 111., to Miss Lizzie Le Compte Holmes, October 8th, 
1885. He was educated in the public schools of Ironton, and 
being of an ambitious and somewhat restless nature, started 
early in life to make a career for himself. He was first con- 
nected with the Lorraine Manufacturing Company, one of the 
largest industries of his native State, and steadily grew into 
the confidence of his employers by his steadfast purpose and 
willingness to work. After remaining with the Company for 
several years, he resigned his position in 1883 to accept a call 
to Nebraska City, Neb., where he entered upon what was 
destined to be his work for the greater part of his life, viz., 
the problems of city lighting. Whatever Mr. Bixby under- 
took he entered into with all the enthusiasm of his nature, 
studying every detail until the subject was thoroughly 
mastered. Not only was he skilled in the technical part of 
his work, but his extraordinary ability in the management of 
public utilities and his winning personality in his relation to 
public officials and citizens at large made him early in life 
a marked man and one destined for rapid advancement in 
his profession. His success in Nebraska won for him the 
attention of capitalists in various parts of the country, and he 
was successively called to take charge of lighting plants in 
Galena, 111. ; Little Rock, Ark. ; Wichita, Kan. ; Sherman, Tex. ; 
Lorraine, Ohio, and Champaign, Decatur and Quincy, 111., 
from which latter city he was called by the Geo. E. Macomber

interests, of Augusta, Me., to take charge of the Springfield 
Gas and Electric Company and the Springfield Traction 
Company. He studied in detail every position that he held, 
strengthened weak places, showed remarkable foresight for 
such changes as would enhance the value of the property, led 
people to believe as he did, and he rarely made a mistake. 
His ability to make friends and hold them, and to win over 
the enemies of public utilities, were among his best business 
assets. 

Mr. Bixby came to Springfield early in the spring of 1906, 
and remained with the Macomber interests until the spring 
of 191 1, when the Gas, Electric and Traction Companies which 
he managed were taken over by the Federal Light & Traction 
Company, of New York City, with which corporation he 
remained until his death. During his management of these 
utilities, the various plants were practically rebuilt, expanded 
and brought to a high state of efficiency. While devoted to 
his profession, he still found time for some degree of social 
life, and was a man whom people loved to meet. Gentle and 
dignified in bearing, he was a favorite among all classes of 
people, and his death is a source of universal regret. 

He was President of the Missouri Electric, Gas, Street 
Railway and Waterworks Association in 1908-1909; President 
Springfield Traction and Employees' Association, 1910-1911; 
a Director in the Merchants' National Bank of Springfield; 
the first President of the Springfield Country Club; Director 
in the Springfield Club, and a member of various fraternal 
organizations. 

He was Vice-President of the Springfield Chapter, Sons 
of the Revolution, and was elected Vice-President of the State 
Society at its last meeting in St. Joseph. He was a member 
of the Society through the service of Private Solomon Bixby, 
of Massachusetts.
